Eredivisie: Louis van Gaal appointed technical advisor to Ajax Supervisory Board

Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been appointed as technical advisor to AFC Ajax Supervisory Board.

Van Gaal will focus on football technical matters in the new role. This move comes as a response to the vacancy created by the departure of former Supervisory Board member Jan van Halst, who opted not to return to the board after serving as interim CEO at Ajax.

Also, the decision regarding the appointments of Michael van Praag and Leo van Wijk to the Supervisory Board is set to be made during the Annual Meeting of Shareholders on November 17.

If van Praag is appointed, he will also assume the role of Chairman of the Supervisory Board. The current members of the Ajax’s Supervisory Board are Cees van Oevelen, Georgette Schlick, and Annette Mosman.
